Flooring installers have a degree of influence on which flooring homeowners choose to buy, and they are more likely to promote a floor that they’re familiar with and can install with confidence.
(PRWEB UK) 4 July 2012
Quick-Step laminate has always been a popular product amongst homeowners shopping with Factory Direct Flooring since it launched, but this year the site has seen a fantastic increase in orders, particularly since the Quick-Step Academy opened its doors in April.
The Quick-Step Academy officially launched on the 17th of April this year and is one of the largest laminate and wood flooring training centres in the world. Based in Greater Manchester, the training facility has a number of floor fitting courses on offer to installation companies who can work towards becoming a Quick-Step Master Installer.
Paul Hambidge, Owner of Factory Direct Flooring, believes that the Academy is likely to have a positive impact on the Quick-Step brand itself, “flooring installers have a degree of influence on which flooring homeowners choose to buy, and they are more likely to promote a floor that they’re familiar with and can install with confidence. The new courses provided by Quick-Step are inevitably going to result in more floor fitters that are happy to work with Quick-Step’s product range.”
Whether this has already having an impact and the demand for Quick-Step has risen as a result of the training centre opening or not, Factory Direct Flooring has certainly received more interest in Quick-Step. In fact, their sales of Quick-Step products have improved by almost 40% in Q2 when the Academy opened, in comparison to Q1 this year.
“As flooring specialists with years of knowledge and experience in the industry, we do tend to have more confidence in recommending the products we know will have fewer problems for our customers and in our experience, most problems with flooring occur due to poor installation,” explains Paul Hambidge.
